The Brazilian Sound Blog

Welcome to The Brazilian Sound blog.

Here we will be posting essays, photos, and links that supplement the information in the upcoming 3rd edition of "The Brazilian Sound: Samba, Bossa Nova and the Popular Music of Brazil" (Temple University Press), which was published on December 28, 2008 (see right hand margin for the new cover)

The photo here is of the cover of the 2nd edition of the book, published by Temple University Press in 1998, and features a David Glat photo of a Timbalada drummer. The first edition was published by Billboard Books in 1991.
